Meet the new Room to Grow Ambassador this month

The newest Texas Apartment Association Education Foundation Room to Grow Ambassador, Melody King, is joining the ranks of industry professionals sharing their stories to help new talent find their fit in the multifamily industry. King’s video will debut later this month.

King’s story will sound familiar to many in the industry, and may strike a chord with Texans looking for a first career—or a new career in this time of economic uncertainty.

Melody started in the industry at the age of 18. She was a young wife and mom and she was in need of both a job and housing. She had never stepped foot in an apartment community but thought apartments might be the answer for her and her young family.

After applying to a number of places, and almost giving up, she literally took a road less traveled as she headed home, stopped at an apartment community along the way, and was interviewed and hired on the spot as a leasing agent. Melody knew right away that she was in the right place and that she had found not only a place to live but her career home.

Today, Melody is a Senior Regional Vice President with BH Management Services, LLC and she still loves what she does every day! Hear the rest of Melody’s story when her Room to Grow Ambassador video debuts August 19. Watch for announcements on TAAEF and TAA social media channels.

The Room to Grow campaign is a key driver of TAAEF’s work to bring new talent to the multifamily industry by raising awareness about the apartment industry as a career path with room for growth and advancement.

For the last two years TAAEF’s “Be the Next Room to Grow Ambassador video challenge” has helped us share stories of those who have found success in the industry, love their career and are passionate about sharing it with others.  To see our first winner, Sam Levassar’s video, click here.
